Fairly Legal

Fairly Legal centers on Kate Reed, a top litigator frustrated with the endless bureaucracy and daily injustices of the system, who takes a hard left to become the ultimate anti-lawyer: a mediator. Using her knowledge of the law, along with her savvy, intuition and a whatever-it-takes approach to resolving conflict, Kate finds the middle ground for a wide variety of adversaries - from Fortune 500 corporations to bitter divorces. After the sudden death of her father, she finds herself at odds with the new boss, her stepmother Lauren Reed... and in bed with her soon-to-be ex-husband, Justin Patrick, a top gun in the DA's office. Helping her keep all of this chaos at bay is her trusted, geek-chic assistant Leonardo.

And the real summary, i intended to write, but edited down:

In spite of the Title, this is the first episode, Kate Reed does not get handcuffed to a Bench. Yep disappointing as hell. But she does have to please the judge again. Only this time he does not act like an absolute A hole. He asks for help. A high school football (the sissy version of rugby, are only played in the US and a lot more boring and less action packed than rugby that are played all over the world (but not as boring as baseball, a kids game in Europa, but for some reason played by adults in the US)) coach he respects needs help with a mediation. The mediation a result of parents complaining over the coach. :-D :-D :-D

Down to 8. -1 point for a stupid, silly locker room scene only a prude would find remotely entertaining. ZZZ here from the free world. If stepped up 10 notches, it might have been funny, but still misplaced and very "not that old ... again". She should have jumped at the chance to give some really dirty sexist comments on and to the youngsters. That could have been fun. Still stupid, but fun.
